My last shipment from Royal Colors for the season

I just opened the box of bulbs that arrived from Royal Colors. When I ordered my Luna and Mount Blanc (mother bulb) I was told on the site that I'd get a surprise bulb. BOY DID I EVER!!!! In addition to what I ordered I got 2 surprise bulbs....Rebecca and Germa. And, the Germa is a clister that has 17 babies clinging to the side! I just looked these up online. Rebecca is a fragrant pink trumpet and Germa is yellow and a species!!!!! I must have been done something very good in life recently (hmmm...thinking....) to have deserved such good bulbs!

BTW...I opened each bag and most of the bulbs have thick, fresh white roots. SO....even ordering this late in the season, I got bulbs that look like they haven't been out of the field too long! I go home in 3 hours...I can't wait to get these planted!!

:-)....so happy!

Kristi, nice work on the freebie bulbs. You'll love Rebecca! I got one in the Yahoo coop and it was most excellent. Fragrant, beautiful, and a strong grower. It's bulblets are huge in fact, and it's seeds did a great job germinating. Both of your bulbs sound great in fact. Which bulbs did you get that you ordered? Such fun! Alana

Well, that's not really fair to send an email end of March urging people to get one more order in, and then offering free bulbs 10 days later. Not fair at all - especially for a regular customer.

Dear Anna and all,

Gosh...I'm afraid to post anything anymore. I was so excited about getting my last bulbs of the season, and in such great shape...and with my 2 bulbs that were "surprises" as per the website...I had no idea that someone's feelings would be hurt.

Anna, I'll be happy to share some Germa babies when they get roots!

Sales happen all the time and usually I'm the one that shops on Tuesday and the big sale is announced on Wednesday.

In their emails, I think (I'm not sure) that RC was letting people know that the end of the shipping season is fast approaching. I can't defend their timing of the addition of the surprise bulb(s) for an order of a certain size. For once I got lucky...and again, I'll send you Germa babies if it's possible to send them to Canada.

Sigh.....

Oh gosh, Kristi - sorry to bum you out - didn't mean to. Be happy for your wonderful bulbs!

PS - plant material cannot be sent to Canada (just seeds) - but I appreciate the thought.

Kristi,

Nothing comes from nothing, nothing ever could
So, somewhere in your youth or childhood
You must have done something good.

A classic. : )

Congratulations on your new bulbs! SCORE!!

One of my favorites, also. For those who don't know what we are talking about, it is a song from the movie "The Sound of Music". When I was just a little kid, my mother played the record over and over. I linked the song on YouTube below. You're welcome. :)
